Looking to be a long time resident:

Moving to a new part of town is exciting, but could be a little bit scary if you haven’t visited the local area before. Which cafe makes the best coffee? How will you know who your favourite new pizza place will be? Where will you spend your weekends?
Here is a list of the best for old and new locals…

  1. Architecture – The Northeast is one of a few places in Melbourne with a unique mix of Victorian and modern architecture. Old buildings, such as the Essendon Courthouse built way back in 1890, mix beautifully with thoughtfully designed modern architecture. It’s a fantastic treat for the eyes when your local walk around the block is this splendid.
  2. Good public transport – If you’re already looking at property for sale, Essendon has great public transport connectivity with trams, trains and buses making it easy to get around your new area.
  3. A general closeness – Essendon especially, as well as Moonee Ponds, is only a few kilometers from the city and is close to riverfronts. You’ll find your drive times to shops and big centres like DFO Essendon short and easy.

Where do we start?! This area is packed full of fun and unique experiences for kids of all ages (you’re still a kid in your 40’s, right?)
